MoDOT and the City of Harrisonville are planning a project to reconstruct Mechanic Street as a three-lane highway with new pavement, curbs and gutters, sidewalks on both sides, and added overhead street lighting along the route.

Why is MoDOT doing this project?

The project will widen the highway from two to three lanes east of Eastwood Road to Stella Street, add an enclosed storm drain system in the area, fix drainage and replace culverts east of Eastwood, and improve safety and accessibility for pedestrians. Click here to review the project map.

Pavement condition continues to challenge maintenance crews because of runoff damage and insufficient base materials. Reconstruction of the roadway would ensure more stable, smoother pavement that would minimize maintenance for decades to come.

How Will this Project Benefit Pedestrians?

The project will also reconstruct 5-foot-wide sidewalks from Independence Street to Eastwood Road and add 5-foot-wide sidewalks on the north and reconstruct 5-foot-wide sidewalks on the south side from east of Eastwood Road to Stella Street. Accessible ramps at curbs, and pedestrian crosswalks at Independence Street, Highland Drive and possibly Eastwood Road and Price Street will more safely accommodate all pedestrian traffic.

Nearby middle school traffic need better pedestrian access, which can be improved with sidewalks and crosswalks along Route 7.

When Will Construction Begin?
The $2.9 million project will start in spring 2015 and be completed that season.

How will Construction Impact Motorists?
Replacement of the pavement and drainage improvements will cause significant impact to traffic during construction.

While an effort will be made to minimize restrictions and traffic congestion, Mechanic Street may be reduced to one lane, signal-controlled traffic during periods of construction.
